My political corner
The law does say that the President can make temporary, acting, interim appointments to the position of FBI Director.....it doesn't stipulate how many or how few.........1, or 2, or maybe even 5..........& the Senate doesn't get to say anything about any of those appointments because they aren't presented as permanent appointments.That's a fact......it's sort of a loophole in the process, & one President Trump could have a field day with!!Chew on that one for a while............
Living as you do in a part democracy and juvenile nationalism that requires 16 securty agencies is a damn farce.
American law can do nothing against the president that decides to behave like a total scumbag.
Are not your own politicians worth talking about?

The documentation of Mr. Trump's request [to Comey to shut down the investigation concerning Flynn's ties to Russia] is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump's associates and Russia.
What exactly did Comey do to aggravate Trump so that he ended up fired?
My opinion of Comey's handling of the Clinton email issue remains the same. I believe he sacrificed his career and reputation to avoid taking from the American voters their option of having the leader of their choice. If Comey had pushed for Clinton's indictment, the country would have ended up with a President Trump without a "fair" election. That was the worst-case scenario for the country and the world. Comey prevented that disaster while still making it clear to the American public that Clinton was not guilt-free with her email server. He let the voters decide how much weight to assign all of that. In my opinion, Comey handled the Clinton email situation like a patriot. The media is spinning the situation as "making it all about himself." That's true in the same sense that a Medal of Honor winner who jumped on a grenade to save his buddies is "making it all about himself." I don't disagree with the characterization that Comey was trying to be the "hero" because that's how it looks to me too.(source))
to be overgenerous with apparently classified information
Comey did technically usurp -with the help of President Obama and Atty General Loretta Lynch- the AG's role...
ersi, why post a link to a story you haven't read? (Or is it merely a case of having a deficient sense of humor?)
Another load of nonsense that picture.
In case you didn't know, that's a Russian minaret.
If anyone is still interested: The commission of an "independent" counselor egregiously muddies the waters...The original investigation was of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. By making such a criminal investigation, the Justice Dept. has rejected an intelligence investigation. (Lots of special safeguards apply in criminal investigations that are moot in a counter-intelligence investigation...) But maybe a "counselor" is not a prosecutor? Of course, the average Democrat won't know that!
The basic error with this as grounds for firing Comey is that it vaguely resembles juridico-political reasoning. Trump doesn't do that sort of thing.

Mueller is an honorable man; a competent man. (And a Democrat.)
